This apartment is literally packed full with cool, space-saving solutions. Perhaps the most common is the Murphy bed.
Also called a fold-down bed, the Murphy bed gets its name from William Lawrence Murphy, who invented it out of moral necessity. During the late 1800s, it was highly inappropriate for a woman to enter a man’s bedroom, unless they were married or family. This rule made it almost impossible to court his opera singer girlfriend from his studio apartment. In order to solve this problem, he created the original Murphy bed and turned his bedroom into a parlor suitable for wooing a lady.
Since their invention, Murphy beds have been popular in many small spaces and have even seen upgrades like integrated lighting and storage.
